Best place we have been in Asia so far. It is so beautiful and peaceful even with bus loads and bus loads of your groups rocketing through. Take your time, enjoy the massive grounds, talk to some monks. It's an easy (ish) walk here from Datanla falls and you can take the bus back to Dalat from back on the... More

I see the beauty and serenity in this complex. It is a shame however that at the time of my visit a part was under construction/maintenance. Also the area was teeming with spiders and incredibly huge spiderwebs. The monastery is great. P.s. The cable car is great and safe, no worries.

for flower lover or just simply for someone who love the beauty of nature, this is a must to come. The way to pagoda pass by green and clean Tuyen Lam lake and a pine trees forest which give the pagoda an unique view. Getting into the pagoda, you will be covered by flowers, lots of types and colors. Nice... More

A friend and I who are backpacking through the country went up to the monastery for a short visit, and found ourselves talking to one of the monks and we asked if we could join them for a day and master Ti Phuong said we may. So the next morning we arrive at 5:45 am and we're treated amazingly. We... More

It has a wire cabin road over forests on a huge height, few temples, weird forms of trees and bamboo planations.

I came on a weekday in September, so there was not many people there at all. The pagoda is atop a mountain so you can get some decent views as well as a lot of flowers around the premises. The cable car from the city costs a few bucks, but the temple itself is free.

I walked here from the crazy house about 5km. I ended up at the end point. Google maps is your friend. Very interesting walk going through streets that are so narrow. Caught the cable car across and virtually no queue. Then was at the start point and walked back into town about 3km. Went via the futa bus station where... More

We visited the Truc Lam cable car as part of our tour. This was an excellent and welcomed addition to the tour and provided us with excellent views of the mountain scenery. IWe must have been out of season because the place was dead, which made it much better for us… our own little cable ride. I would recommend this.

While this is not the most beautiful temple I've visited, it is very peaceful and quiet. Moreover, unlike other "attractions" it's free. Its located over a lake and the whole surroundings are quite a sight. We have been walking from the Crazy House to the pagoda, which took us about an hour. The road is easy to follow once you...

Before getting on my trip to Da Lat, I had listed Truc Lam meditation centre as one of those must-visit places of all while I am there. Maybe I should not expect anything, if you are seeking for a Zen ambiance then it might not the place to be. If you want to learn about Buddhism or meditation, then it... More
